The Vantage 580 is one of the most compact and powerful diesel engine-driven welders/generators in the construct on, pipe or rental fleet market today. They are also the most quiet, with a smooth running 4-cylinder Perkins® water cooled diesel engine. The Vantage 580 includes VRD (Voltage Reduction Device), which reduces OCV (open circuit voltage) in the CC Stick weld mode for added safety. These models effectively generate high auxiliary power on 3-phase or 1-phase AC to power your lights, grinders, power tools, and Inverters.
They are housed in a rugged, low maintenance stainless steel enclosure and loaded with many innovative service features.
